S'More Ice Cream

Toss a few Golden Grahams cereal bits together with mini marshmallows and chocolate chips and you've got S'More Ice Cream fun! The how-to is adapted from recipes in the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook by Christina Tosi.

There is a little prep work involved such as making Graham Cracker Cereal. However, the effort is worth every bite of smooth, S'More goodness.

The birthplace of fairy cakes is Great Britain (where it was thought that this petite sponge cake was the perfect size for a party of fairies.) I’ve adapted a recipe from Mary Berry’s Baking Bible.

This recipe is adapted from Jessie Oleson's The Secret Lives of Baked Goods.

Betty Watkinson's Cranberry Bread

A magical cranberry bread recipe that was found on the floor of my mother-in-law's apartment shortly after she passed. This was one of David's favorite childhood goodies. It might sound funny but I always feel a loving presence when baking a loaf of Betty's Cranberry Bread.
